Mathematical models of the monolith catalytic converter: Part I. Development of model and application of orthogonal collocation

Authors


Abstract

The orthogonal collocation method is applied to solve the mathematical model of a monolith catalytic converter, in which the reaction takes place in a porous catalytic layer deposited on the wall of a tube. A sequence of models is developed, with the most complicated one involving transient heat and mass transfer in three dimensions.
